I was a little hard pressed for time recently and have been thinking of simple dishes to cook. One of them is this Chinese Pork Chop. This is a dish which my husband and I will agree on as our kind of comfort food. Coincidentally, our mums used to cook it for us in our growing up years.
I know our readers will love this dish as it is so simple and fast to whip up, and the meat is flavourful and succulent. Who enjoys a hard and dry pork chop? To achieve tender, moist and juicy pork chops, I tenderize the meat with this secret ingredient: CORNFLOUR.
